Using gitolite to manage your projects

Well we all know that git is a great tool for managing your code, but what about if you want to manage git access to your various repos. Welcome to gitolite available under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

"Gitolite allows you to setup git hosting on a central server, with fine-grained access control and many more powerful features."  gitolite.com

For help in setting this up I found a useful article that explains a little about how it works here:

Creating Website Thumbnails

I am in the process of migrating a Xoops site to Drupal and wanted to migrate the 'Web Links' module feature to my new Drupal based links directory.

One option that adds a field formatter for the link type field type is the pagepeeker module that integrates nicely with the link module. However for my purpose I wanted to avoid any additional costs or compromising my sites identity etc.

Welcome to mozshot.

Touching on :hover states

For years now web designers and developers have been utilising the :hover pseudo class to add life to their website or project. This is quite a common convention and is tradionally used to give hyperlinks diffferent states, but is not restricted to use just on hyperlinks (apart from say older browsers) .

 

The :hover selector is used to select elements when you mouse over them.

Tip: The :hover selector can be used on all elements, not only on links.

Speeding up Mac Mail

I have been a Mac user for many years now, but have been less than pleased with Apple's Mail application recently due to the fact it takes so long to start up and then to find anything using its built in search. This has been a problem for me for some time, so I thought I would share a solution with those of you who might be experiencing similar issues.

 I am personally using Mac OS 10.7.5 (Lion) with Mail 5.3.

Firebug is Dead - Long Live Firebug

In 1998, Netscape released most of its code base for it popular Netscape Communicator browser suite under an open license. Around the same time, the Mozilla Organisation was formed, and they would later go on to release the first Mozilla Bowser, which would later surpass its predecessor Netscape in terms of  features, stability and standards compliance. This development continued under the AOL banner until 2003, when it was passed over to the newly formed not-for profit Mozilla Foundation.

Getting started with Git to manage your projects

I have seen various people using Git on a daily basis from design agencies to software houses, all in slightly different ways. There are many reasons for using Git or even other version control systems especially where there are two or more people collaborating on any one project at the same time.
